Three Floyd's Brewing is the largest craft brewery in Indiana.

State of play: The Munster-based brewery ranked 20th among the nation's top craft breweries, according to a new Brewers Association report.

  • It was the only Hoosier brewery in the top 50.
  • Three Floyd's cracked the top 20 for the first time, moving up from 24th largest in 2022 and 39th in 2018.

The big picture: The craft beer industry declined in 2023 for the second consecutive year.

Yes, but: The craft beer industry didn't shrink as much as the beer market did as a whole, and new brewery openings nationwide outpaced closings.

💭 Our thought bubble: Three Floyd's is best known for its uber-popular Zombie Dust pale ale and easy-drinking Gumballhead wheat — both easy to find on tap and on the shelves at restaurants, liquor stores and even Costcos around Indy — but don't forget about the OG, Alpha King.
